Correct. Sealegs. He had a smaller Sealegs that I've seen a couple of times at Abersoch (St Tidwals is his Island) and he got a bigger one recently. Extra levers do the "on land bit"

Please enlighten me on what vessels do the RNLI use spring loaded throttles.

Yes indeed you are wrong - the Atlantic 85 has conventional throttles that are not spring loaded.

Yes you are right that the Atlantic 85 does not have a conventional kill cord but then you are dealing with a highly trained, professional, crew, who know what exactly they are doing with a very experienced helmsman who never leaves their position and who will always have one hand on the throttles.

FI where is a "kill cord" on an Atlantic 85 but this is only fitted to the fourth crew member who sits in isolation at the rear and this will only light up a warning light on the helm when activated.
